TO FOURTH GRADE

Welcome

pagano.jpg

Hello-
My name is Stephanie Pagano. I am so excited to be the fourth grade teacher this year. I have been teaching for 11 years, and this will be my third year at Ascension. I graduated from UCSB with my Bachelor of Science Degree in Biological Sciences. I hold my multiple subject teaching credential from Cal State LA. I taught elementary science for eight years, and love bringing science and engineering into the classroom whenever I get the chance. My husband, Paul, and I have two children. Lucas is 9 and Alysha (Aly) is 6, and both attend Ascension. We also have a dog named Huxley. My family loves playing games, watching movies, dancing and going to Disneyland!

HOMEWORK

Each week homework will consist of 100 minutes of reading, as well as response questions that relate to the reading. Students will also practice the math skill that was taught that day in class. 

Homework folders and agendas should be taken home and brought back to school each night. The folder provides many helpful websites and anchor charts to help the students.
